Iyengar Yoga at Sand Hills Wellness Center
What is Iyengar Yoga?
Iyengar Yoga is an approach to teaching, learning, and practicing yoga that was developed by yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar (1918-2014). Mr. Iyengar developed a precise and systematic method in which the practice of physical postures (asanas) opens onto a deep exploration of our emotional, psychological, and spiritual selves. His work, carried on by his family and the teachers trained in his method, has shaped the practice of yoga in the modern world.
Iyengar yoga teachers undergo years of rigorous training. Iyengar yoga classes emphasize clarity of instruction, systematic guidance in the asana practice, and the adaptation of poses to meet the needs of individual students.
